Hey y’all! Welcome to our new spot for blogging our Birch Blaze Studios’ portrait sessions! We felt it would be best to keep things related to our portraiture, as well as some personal interest posts now and then, all on the same website. This is a family portrait session we did in Los Angeles a few months back. We photographed Michael & Ashley’s wedding in NH a few years back and were thrilled to meet up with them in California for a family portrait session in Santa Monica. We began the session on Santa Monica State Beach and finished up on the famous Santa Monica Pier. We LOVE playing Southern California family photographers, even if it’s only when we visit from time to time! So, without further ado, here are some favorites from our family beach photo shoot….
